Weekly Menu

FINALLY!  We have gotten a break from the oppressive heat!  It should be beautiful and mid 70's here all week!  I am beyond thrilled that fall is slowly rolling in.  We had a lovely trip to the farm and I am looking forward to trying some new recipes this week!  We brought home some rainbow chard, kale, broccoli, carrots, sweet Maui onion, basil, cilantro, tomatoes, cucumber, zucchini, and more watermelon!  I thought watermelons were done for the year, but the farm had a small group still growing strong.  My daughter and I were so excited!  With this great haul, we will be making the following:

  • Ultimate Mexican Pizza with Restaurant Style Salsa and Crock Pot "Refried" Beans
    • using the cilantro, onion, tomatoes

  • Thai Crunch Salad
    • using the carrots and cucumber

  • I will be enjoying the Kaleslaw for lunch (I told you I love this salad!)
    • using the kale

For the baby
  • Alphabet Pasta with Bell Peppers and Rosemary
    • using some remaining bell peppers from a previous farm run and backyard rosemary
  • Veggie Fritters
    • using the zucchini
  • Roasted Broccoli finger foods
    • using the broccoli

We will be enjoying the watermelon for dessert
